‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’ is the Free eBook Today

The classic Sherlock Holmes mystery The Hound of the Baskervilles is our free ebook today. It was originally published in 1902.

The most famous of the Sherlock Holmes stories, The Hound of the Baskervilles features the phantom dog of Dartmoor, which, according to an ancient legend, has haunted the Baskervilles for generations. When Sir Charles Baskerville dies suddenly of a heart attack on the grounds of the family’s estate, the locals are convinced that the spectral hound is responsible, and Holmes is called in.

This title caught my eye because it was recently adapted for television. The BBC has recently finished showing Sherlock, a new interpretation of Conan Doyle’s work, and The Hound of the Baskervilles was used to inspire the second of 3 episodes.

You can find today’s eBook on FeedBooks.

P.S. The other 2 episodes, in case you are curious, were inspired by A Scandal in Bohemia and The Final Problem.
